Mitt Romney Gas Prices Rhetoric Doesn't Get Support Of His Own Economists

Prominent economists have debunked Romney's talking points abouty gas. And now no one from Romney's economic team will step forward to defend him.

Romney is a fraud. I hope people realize this soon.

Romney is a shameless liar, and a craven flip-flopper.

It doesn't matter what his rhetoric is. Five dollar a gallon gas is not going to induce anyone to reelect Obama.

R3, why the fuck not? In what possible way is $5 gas Obama's fault?

Santorum did a huge favor for Obama when he told his stupid followers that there was no point in voting for Mitt and that they might as well keep Obama in office.

I hope that little statement has a nice shelf life!

It doesn't matter whether it's his "fault" R4.

Voters react to their perceived circumstances.

As in, "Am I worse off since this guy became president?"

R7, and I'm saying that's idiotic, and only proves that too many voters are too stupid for words.

It's like they've totally forgotten that gas prices soared far HIGHER under Dubbya, and Republicans insisted that the President didn't have any control over prices back then... and that the price CRASHED during the 2008 Fiscal collapse, so the rise from Obama's inauguration to now is completely artificial.

R8, it's not just the voters that are stupid. It's also most of the media.

R9, the media report what they're paid/told to report. I'm sure there are a lot of stupid newsreaders, but it's not a coincidence that so much of what you see aligns with right-wing talking points... the 1% own the companies that own the news organizations.
